Debian Project Leader Elections: Third and final announcement
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
We are now 17 days into the nomination period for candidates
for the post of the Debian Project Leader. The nomination period
started on 2002/02/06, and shall end on February 27, 2002 (Wed, 27
Feb 2002 23:59:59 +0000 for the pedantically inclined).
Prospective leaders should be familiar with the constitution,
but, just to review: there's a three week period when interested
developers nominate themselves, followed by a three week period with
no nominations [intended for campaigning], followed by three weeks
for the election itself.
Please make sure that nominations are sent to (or cc:'d to)
debian-vote, and are cryptographically signed.
I intend to collect platform statements from the candidates,
and publish them on a known location (somewhere under
www.debian.org/vote) at the end of the nomination period and the
beginning of the campaign, which makes it roughly the 27th of
I suggest that the candidates send the platform, preferably in
HTML/SGML, to the secretary at least a couple of days before the
publication date. (I tentatively suggest Feb 25th).
This should give the candidates enough time to craft their
platforms, I should think. The format of the web page is open to
discussion, but I suggest there be at least three sections:
b) Major Goal/ Meat of the platform,
After the publication, there share be a one week period for
each candidate to create a rebuttal, and the rebuttals shall be
published on the 7th of march.
Voting shall start on the 21st of March, 2002, and shall last
for 3 weeks, ending on the 10th of April.
Adapt. Enjoy. Survive.
